The Ericksons were on their way out of Twentynine Palms for a military move so we captured some great images for them to commemorate the time here and hopefully help decorate their new home. Family sessions in the Joshua Tree National Park inevitably mean we will be doing some rock climbing, generally more than mom and dad had planned 🙂 ; this session was no different. With little adventurous ones we had fun finding new spots, on new rocks, that we could photograph both the beauty of this family as well as, the amazing desert setting.
As moms we often miss the opportunity to capture ourselves and our relationships with those in our family; it is something that I always encourage my moms to – I myself am bad about it. Mom rocked her portraits like a star in this session. Bet the hubby has one of these in his wallet before too long. We also took a few brief moments to capture mom and dad not as parents but as a couple. These two were fun and endearing to one another creating amazing pictures but also emoting their love and friendship. These are the moments that I live for and are why I am so in love with what I do ❤
I love maternity sessions; I love babies so I was super excited when Katrina and Will decided to let me capture their new adventure. Since they are here on a short military tour they wanted to make sure to capture the beauty of the desert; the birth place of their new life together as mom and dad! With baby due to arrive soon be on the look out for more gorgeous images of this family.
I have had the pleasure of watching this young lady grow up the last few years. Jubilee made the most out of her high school career as she played soccer, sang in the Select Choir and graduated at the top of her class academically. Choosing stay local for the start of college then adventuring off to a bright future I am sure. I am excited to share this beautiful session and person!
Maggie and Greg were a fun spirited couple that wanted to capture their relationship in an image. We wondered through the Big Canyon Morongo Preserve, making Greg feel a little at home with the marshy setting and we captured some great photos. They were playful, affectionate and had some fun in front of the lens. Enjoy!
As their family’s adventures were taking them across the world to Italy they wanted to capture a piece of their time here in the beautiful desert. Despite the windy conditions they showed dressed in gorgeous colors and ready to have some fun. We did a little climbing, maybe some bribing and most definitely some great picture capturing. Capturing the National Park was important because they enjoyed many times climbing and hiking while stationed here. I’m glad I was able to send a little piece of the desert with them!
Hailee is a recent high school graduate ready to make her way in this world. Always exciting for me to capture this time in life so I was glad we were able to get our schedules together. We traveled through out the Basin to capture some desert scenes and some green. I think both settings gave us a perfect mix with Hailee’s great smile for some amazing senior shots!
Maddi has a little of it all. She is smart, beautiful and athletic. We captured a little bit of all of her vast experiences in high school through this senior session. As she prepares to walk into the next phase of her life she wanted to ensure that we captured some personality with her hometown. I’m excited to see where this life takes you Maddi!
So these two were adventurous for their engagement session with me; we met before the sun came up and began our small hike into this beautiful arch! In tow we had some outfit changes, a picnic basket with champagne and chocolate what more could we ask for? These two were fun, loving and produced some amazing images! Thank you for sharing this great time with Memories by Tasha!
This cute little family wanted to make sure they took a piece of the desert with them when they left so we spent some time taking photos at the Indian Cove Amphitheatre. Their 7 month old sweetheart wasn’t sure he was too excited about our plans but gave several good images with a great setting. I wish them luck in all their future endeavors and I hope these images remind them of their one time home.
